We had so much fun with this unit! This is our Learn Vegetable Names in English through Games post! We have studied the difference between fruits and vegetables before (see it here), but this time, we focused on learning the names of different vegetables, including roots. Come take a look at grab your awesome printables!
For this unit, I decided to visit a field that we drive by ever time we go to town. This time, they decided to plant onions! Oh, what a beautiful endless field of tall flower balls! The smell of onion is in the air, but it’s not pungent or abhorrent. It is the smell of sweet onion, if there is such a thing.
We had fun studying all the parts of this plant, including the onions growing at the bottom. It reminded us of our lessons on parts of the plant, parts of the fruit (lesson) (with printables) and parts of a flower and flower unit. It is always so interesting learning about botany!
Next, I set up the lesson with the printable set I created. I printed the activity papers in color on cardstock to make them more durable. The activities like the I Spy and the matching can be printed on regular letter-sized paper. Cut up the matching game pieces individually and set aside. See image below for instructions.
Step 1: Get 2 letter-sized papers, an exact-o knife, a glue stick and tape.
Step 2: Cut the veggie market pieces in the printable set (cards and baggies as well as the sign).
Step 3: On one sheet of paper, glue the market sign and the three veggie baggies using a glue stick.
Step 4: Using the exact-o knife, place the sheet on a cutting board and make a slit on the top of each baggie. The slits should be big enough for the cards to fit through. Please keep the exact-o knife out of the reach of children!
Now, turn the page over and place the second white sheet on top of it and then move it up about half an inch from the bottom page and tape it at the bottom only. It will be a bit of a flat pouch.
Step 5: Have the child sort the cards and when done, pull the page up to access the cards that are contained in the flat pouch to start over again! 🙂
As you can see, it was a fun and easy activity that teaches children to sort, to use their fine motor skills and the names of these vegetable roots. Next, Sister enjoyed coloring the pictures in the coloring page and then matched the vegetables on the cutting board. Please point out that some of these are considered fruits by some groups. To see definitions, go HERE.
Don’t forget to play the I Spy game and the matching game! They are also part of this printable set and it will be lots of fun. This set is geared toward preschoolers and kinder, but they can be used as review activities for early elementary children as well.
